"Be the change you wish to see."~Mahatma Gandhi

I AM Harmony

Just as chosen musical notes create harmonics, so do your thoughts and feelings create either discord or harmony.  Choose to see the beauty in yourself and others creating beautiful harmony.


I AM Joy



Joy is you at the deepest level.  You are the Joy you seek and are connected with the boundless Joy of the universe.


I AM Love



Mastery of Life:  With an open heart, give out Love and, equally as important, allow it to come in.


I AM Peace


Affirmation:  I AM Peace.  I let go of all worry.  I release all control.  I surrender to a higher power.  I know all is for the best.  I AM in the flow of life.  I AM Peace.

 About Denna the Healer/Hypnotist...

Denna has twenty plus years in the healing arts as a certified Reiki Master and 13th Octave LaHoChi Practitioner.  She believes the touchstone and balancer of all energies is love.  Her role as the healer is to open your heart to love where transmutation and regeneration take place. 

Enthralled with the power of the subconscious mind, in 2002 Denna became certified as an hypnotherapist through the "International Network for Alternative & Intuitive Therapies, Inc.,"  New York, NY.   She used hypnotherapy primarily for weight loss and stress management in the last five years of her 25 year career in the fitness industry.

Denna obtained a second hypnosis certificate in 2016 through the "National Guild of Hypnotists, Inc.," Boston, MA.  She currently offers a combination of Reiki with hypnosis providing a "powerful combination" covering many issues or modalities. 

What a few of many have said:

"...I have know Denna for many years and am blessed, not only to have her as a dear friend but a gifted healer.  When I was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, Denna immediately became part of my healing journey.  With numerous rounds of chemotherapy, it is my belief that her healing hands reached across the miles to aid in keeping my body strong and resistant to many side effects that could have surfaced...  Thank you, Denna." Bonny M., Atlanta, GA

Denna shares her loving energy in such a way that the effects can be felt immediately in mind, body, and spirit.  She is open-hearted and generous, addressing our cares to show us our own power to heal and be healed.  Katherine H., Annapolis, MD

As a long-time sufferer of allergies and asthma, I tried herbs, massage, acupuncture and Reiki with minimal results.  I received a 13th Octave LaHoChi treatment from Denna several years ago, and not only did my asthma feel immediately relieved during the treatment, but the energy I felt was powerful enough to compel me to read into and become initiated as a LaHoChi healer.  Denna has a natural talent for healing.  Her intuitive, caring, professional demeanor brings comfort to any client, even those who are new to this modality.  I recommend her to anyone experiencing pain, discomfort or simply seeking relaxation.  Taylor S., Atlanta, GA

"Reiki with Denna is a powerful tool for the body and spirit.  I haven't been this relaxed in years, and I find myself smiling for no particular reason.   ....My experience with her healing work is so profound that I keep telling other people to try it!"  Tracy A., Western NC

"....I was deeply grieving the loss of my beloved husband of 35 years and in great emotional pain.  .... I was so surprised and appreciative when, after my first healing session, I felt so much better.  I went back for a second session and a third.  It made a huge difference in my physical and mental states. ... I will be forever grateful."  Catherine F., Western, NC

“My hypnotherapy journey for weight loss with Denna has been interesting, enlightening, fun and successful to date.  My commitment to lose 1.5 to 2 pounds per week was established with a goal weight at my first session with Denna. And here I am several sessions and seven weeks later, 14 pounds lighter and greater every day in every way as I continue towards my goal.  Denna is a great communicator, listener, and teacher who radiates the power of positive thinking.  I highly recommend her as a hypnotherapist and healing arts practitioner to anyone.”   E. K. R., Western, NC

"Denna has been working her magic with Reiki, and Love, with me. When she suggested Reiki/Hypnotherapy I was excited to see what might occur. After our first session I was amazed to find that a life-long problem with negativity was almost completely healed..... what a thrilling feeling!  I will continue to see what further awakenings happen.  I would refer any family/friends  to share this unique experience with a very special woman." J.M., Western, NC

"Thank you for carving out the time to see my sister.  She came back to me very happy and relieved of many pains that plague her and she said she loved you and the session! J.M., Western, NC

 "I had no idea that such a few sessions could give such amazing results! When we started I was having a difficult time sleeping. "Monkey mind" was a nightly issue. This may sound like a small thing but night after night with less and less sleep takes a toll on your life. After two hypnosis sessions I have been able to put the monkeys to bed!  The Reiki work Denna did on my hands has made a wonderful difference in my daily life from every day activities to improved participation in my yoga practice.  With so much less pain everything is easier. Thank you, Denna! I look forward to more sessions in the future!"  Harriet, Bakersville, NC

 "Recently I had my first hypnosis and Reiki session with Denna.  She has a beautiful way to put you at ease and her questions clearly show a deep knowledge and a solid background in hypnosis.  I wanted to deal with some personal insecurities and a difficult relationship with my mother. After three weeks, I still feel the great benefits of our session. I find myself  with a sense of “detachment” from things that used to bother me and a better disposition in accepting what I can’t change.  I did psychotherapy for few years when I was younger, and overall I had some benefits but nothing ever proven to be so effective as hypnosis." S.P., Western, NC

 About Denna the Teacher/Workshop Leader...

Denna's strengths include her experience, knowledge, calming and soothing charisma, and passion for what she does.  All of these characteristics, along with her pleasant voice, laid back and comfortable presence and ease of speaking make her the ideal candidate for quality enriched workshops, conference speaker, media interview and appearance.  She is a certified public speaker through Toastmasters International and Empower Productions, Inc.

What a few of many have said:

"Denna is an amazing speaker, spiritual teacher, and guru who has the power to inspire and directly reach her audience.  She obviously really lives and believes in what she talks about and this comes across in her presentations.  She also exudes professionalism in her delivery and enthusiasm for her subject matter and is highly entertaining.  I would strongly recommend Denna as a speaker for any audience that would be interested in learning how to apply spiritual principles to their daily life."~Dr. Emma Hitt

"Denna is an extraordinary speaker, presenter and motivator.  She speaks to her audiences in a deeply moving and personal way and touches the inner spirit of all who hear her.  The reason she can do this is simple:  she is a true-believer in the nurturing and healing of our spirituality and is an incredibly talented, inspirational speaker.  Her deep passion for spiritual healing will capture the hearts of everyone in her audience."~Tom Nixon, Tom Nixon Design

"Denna is a genuine, delightful person whose spirituality inspires me.  Her presence calms me, just as her guided mediations do.  Denna is a professional speaker whose messages always inspire and lift the spirits of her audience.  She loves helping others find inner peace and recognize their inner beauty."~Rachel Hilgers, International Speaker Coach

“The Journey to the Self Workshop is a wonderful time and gift to give to yourself.  Denna  cares for each participant from the moment you walk through the door until you leave.  This is a well planned day.  It starts with the introduction of the importance of the Body, Mind, and Spirit as one, taking time for movement, and moving into learning about our chakra system, meditation, and moving inward to find a gem that is held inside each of us—OUR TRUTH.  Denna is a wealth of knowledge and she is not only willing to share it, she WANTS to share.  Be prepared for a fun time with everyone as you are lovingly guided to go deeper within to find your truth and know how to take this knowledge with you into your everyday.”~Kathy, Celo, NC

  All women need this workshop at one time or another...good information to carry forward in our lives.   Great materials...will use them into the future.”~Vicki, Durham, NC

Denna’s workshop provides aspects of empowerment that affirm, challenge and encourage each participant to grow into wholeness.  She provides clear handouts that enable you to live the workshop experience daily.  It’s great.”  Sandra, Little Switzerland, NC

 When I took the Journey to the Self Workshop, it felt in many ways like a review of everything I had learned to that point, but reframed and reformatted in a fresh and healthy way -- bringing the elements of body, mind, and spirit together.  The handouts were very helpful, especially the I AM Worksheet, because it helps in recognizing when I am not operating in my TRUTH and gives me a positive way to reframe negative thinking and crippling beliefs.   We ended with a relaxation meditation that brought all the key ingredients together and sent me away feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and empowered.  Denna combines her vast knowledge of spiritual, physical, and emotional wellness into a motivational package... I highly recommend this workshop!  Kathy, Spruce Pine, NC

What a few of many have said:

"I have worked with Denna on many occasions, and each time her messages fit to perfection.  She is forthright and loving in her delivery.  ...I continue to grow from a particular message from my guides through Denna.  It has proven to be an important one.

J.C., Western NC

"Denna's readings are like a must-read book filled with lessons aimed at navigating life.  She is an amazing visionary.  She has helped me immensely through showing me how to deal with life's deadly disease--fear!  I've referred to her prompt and easy-to-read reports countless of times.  I think anyone could benefit from a reading from Denna and especially those who warm the sofas in therapists' offices." M.M., Atlanta, GA
